6 LEADS 2000 provides infrastructure upgrades to the Illinois Criminal Justice Community’s information-sharing and communication network.
7 The heart of LEADS is CHF Born in 1968, the Illinois computerized hot files provide law enforcement with a database for maintaining on-line records of wanted persons, missing persons, stolen vehicles and property.
8 LEADS also provides an administrative messaging component which serves as the primary method for data communications among law enforcement agencies nationwide.
9 LEADS also provides access to the FBI’s National Crime Information Center (NCIC) and the National Law Enforcement Telecommunications System (NLETS) which provides access to other state’s criminal justice information.

12 There are two major phases to LEADS 2000: Statewide TCP/IP Frame Relay NetworkFront-End (Web Client and User Registry)Computer-Based TrainingPhase 2Rewrite of the legacy LEADS computerized hot files database (support of NCIC 2000 functionality)Rewrite of the legacy Administrative Message functionality.
15 Costs?ISP provides the new LEADS 2000 web client software at NO COST to Illinois criminal justice agencies.However, user agencies are responsible for the procurement of personal computers and the network connectivity to the state of Illinois frame relay network.

18 Obstacles to State Justice Information Systems All criminal justice agencies are not connected to the networkExample: Currently 8 Sheriff’s Departments in Illinois do not have direct access to LEADS.Lack of standardsData DictionaryTrainingFingerprint-based employee background checks
19 Obstacles to State Justice Information Systems Name-based systems (no biometrics)Soundex algorithmsPositive identificationIncomplete informationLack of uniformity in data capturing among all 102 counties (e.g., no standard warrant form)Failure by counties to contribute records to the system (e.g., all warrants, etc.)Prisoner transportationTimely entryDelays between the courts and the law enforcement agency entering the court orderAccuracy of DataInadequate quality assurance
